State of Michigan Department of Education - Memorandum: State Board of Education Statement and Guidance on Safe and Supportive Learning Environments for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) Students

The State Board of Education (SBE) is committed to promoting a safe, supportive, and inclusive learning environment for all students and ensuring that every student has equal access to educational programs and activities. Due to a variety of factors, the school experience can be significantly more difficult for students with marginalized identities. Despite widespread efforts, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) students continue to face challenges that threaten their health, safety, and learning opportunities in schools.
